Now hanging in the bar.
A few days ago, I announced the most Civil of Snow men as our entry on the 20th day. Please read it if you have the time.
Jonas Salk did the most Civil of things when he decided not to profit from his discovery of a polio vaccine. And he went one step further by testing it on himself and his family as a transparent show of its safety. For these things, I hold him in the highest regard.
We have 4 spots above the A Civil Life in which we are going to put 4 nicely framed photographs of individuals who have contributed to society in the most civilized way. These individuals have lived exemplary lives and fought for the public while putting aside their own monetary gain. I have a few ideas about who the other 3 framed photographs should be but would rather get some feedback from any of you who are reading this blog.
So I put it to you. Whoever you are. To reach out to me and let me know who you think should be honored with one of the next three spots. I will acknowledge you in this blog and buy you a beer if we use your idea.
But you must be willing to accept fame into your life if your suggestion is taken. Primarily because there are at least 100 people that read this blog. But these great 100 people are unbeknownst to them some of the most influential people in the St. Louis...even the world. If we take your suggestion and write about it there is a major chance you at some point in your near future may wake up with 1000’s of reporters outside your house, need to have armed escorts and have to hire a Public Relations team to answer your mail and plan your schedule. Worse for you this isn’t the sort of 15 minutes of fame you would so want. Instead this notoriety has the incredible chance to go on and on for something like 16 and a half minutes.
But don’t worry, it will be the best 16 and a half minutes of your life.
So let me know by way of an email or carrier pigeon if you have someone you would like to nominate.
Cheers and I look forward to hearing from you.
Hello earthlings. I have been sent here to open a brewery. I hope you have time over the next year to check in from time to time and see our progress (or lack there of at times).
